about 1890
Two-light window. Seated figure of Christ in the left-hand light holding a child and blessing another, with a woman and baby behind and disciple. The right-hand light depicts Christ standing, a child below and disciples behind.

technique: stained glass
size: 36 cm (width of each light)

Church of St Catherine, Llanfaes, Anglesey
south wall of the south aisle

Given in memory of Frank, son of George and Frances Mary Higgins.

The scene on the left of Christ blessing the children who are brought by their mothers is instantly identifiable. The scene in the right-hand light is probably that where Christ sets a child among his disciples, urging them to 'become like children'.
